Independent Study Programme (Dance)

Course Description

The Independent Study Programme (ISP) is the most flexible of our one year options, designed to support and accommodate individual experience, skills and aspirations. It could be the right choice if you're a mature, independent learner who doesn't need the structured approach of the Diploma in Dance Studies but would appreciate the same range of components. You will be supported to deepen and broaden your dance knowledge and practice through independent learning alongside shared practice and collaboration.

Programme Content

Learning takes place in classes, workshops, lectures, seminars and tutorials and through self-directed study, including individual practice, reflection and research. You design your programme by selecting from the following components, up to a maximum of 120 credits:

• Contemporary Dance Technique
• Choreography
• Choreological Practice
• Devising and Performance
• Pilates for Dance
• Contemporary Jazz
• Ballet
• Movement Workshop: The Creative Body
• Movement Workshop: Dance as Performance
• Rep Extracts
• Soundscores for Dance
• The Dancing Body
• Dance Teaching: Principles and Practice
• Teaching Dance Technique
• Choreological Practice - Choreutics
• Dance Perspectives 1: History
• Dance Perspectives 2: Critical Frameworks
• Independent Investigation

See the Programme Specification on our website for more details.


Each component you select will be assessed separately, some by coursework assessment, others by written or practical assignments. At the end of the programme, you will receive a transcript detailing the components studied and assessed, and will be awarded a Trinity Laban Independent Study Programme Certificate.
